Started working on the swingarm and linkage bearings last night. They're in there really tight i only got two of the races out using a vice and a socket. I'll probably end up swinging by napa and getting them to press the rest out for me. If i heat the swingarm and freeze the bearings the new ones should go in pretty easy no? Or will i be better off getting them to press in the new ones as well?

Heat and freezing the bearings will help but you're probably still going to need to do some press work (or the old vice and socket trick).

Be careful with that linkage. There is a shelf the bearings rest against. If you
try to push both bearings out one side, you'll create a mess that can get
pretty expensive (machine shop), to correct. The swingarm is pretty straight
forward. I normally use a neat little tool made by Park. It works great for
pounding out bearings and races in an enclosed space like the steering stem
or swingarm. If you run into some really stuck bearings, try a properly sized
C clamp and some sockets to push the bearings out.

Just the u shaped linkage piece correct? The triangle pivot bearings call all be pressed out either side I believe?

So the swingarm and linkage bearings have been replaced. It all went smoothly just threw the bearings in the freezer the night before and pressed them in with a vice and a socket. Also got the '98 top end and new piston all back together. Suspension is supposed to be in any day now... just waiting on that. I still have to replace the steering stem bearings and i think i'm going to try to polish up the triple clamps a bit too. we'll see how ambitious i am haha.

So it's all coming back together now!! Got my suspension in from Pro action, it looks great! can't wait to see how it rides. I got quite a bit done last night, hopefully by tonight i'll have the forks and wheels on. Ran into one hiccup, as i was torquing the lower engine mount bolt it stripped and now it won't tighten or loosen off. I tried for awhile to get it off but nothing really worked. I'd rather not cut it off because it's in a pretty tight area and i don't want to possibly ding up the case or frame. any tips on getting one of these out?

Got that bolt drilled out last night, have a new one already. I didn't get much else done though, i had to go watch my little sister's basketball game..... I'm planning to work on it again tonight so hopefully i can have it most of the way together. I still need to replace the chain slider and the wear block in the chain guide but i'll order those today. Napa usually gets my stuff for me the next day. Counting the minutes till 6 oclock....

Worked on it again last night!! I'm hoping to have It finished by the end of next week. I still need to order a few things from Honda but that will be done tomorrow so if all goes well i'll be riding next week!
It's great to see it all come back together now

So it's most of the ways back together now, just waiting on a few small things to finish it up. I started putting the graphics on last night as well. If all the parts come in on time i should be breaking it in this weekend!!
